eSATA won't stay connected

Spider, Amazon
27 September 2013
  • Summary: The eSATA port on this is junk. It doesn't hold cables tight enough to keep a good connection. Causes it to connect and disconnect repeatedly, which is bad.

Does what it's supposed to, I guess

  • Summary: I've had this product for around 2-3 years and maybe I expect to much from it. Half of the time I have to wait 30 minutes or an hour before I can even remove media, a single picture or anything from it. The drive crashes when I try writing information to it unless I wait.

Iomega Encryption Utility BS

madcow3417, Amazon
10 April 2011
  • Summary: When you attach this drive to a computer it automatically loads a virtual CD titled Iomega. On that CD is an old version of the Iomega Encryption Utility. This virtual CD is as much a benefit to this hard drive as a nail is to a car tire.

T. Vanselus, Amazon
24 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this drive specifically for the esata port because I wanted to install games on it, and it seems quite fast and high quality besides the broken switch. After just a few weeks of using the drive and I would estimate about 10 times turning it on and off the power switch stopped working except...

disappointing

John Chippindale, Amazon
14 January 2014
  • Summary: The socket into the unit and the cable joining it is quite loose fitting and this results in no power connection unless it is perfectly aligned. Not satisfactory in a portable unit.
